The Big Fun Run 5K series is set to return to Ipswich this year, with organisers promising it will be bigger and better than ever.

The 5K run will take place in Christchurch Park on September 1, starting at 11am. Runners of all ages are welcome to take part, with free entry for under-fives.

Many of those joining in the series of 20 runs across the country choose to raise money for a good cause. Last year, more than £220,000 was raised for charity nationally, with hundreds of charities across the UK benefiting.

Big Fun Run event director Neil Kilgour said: “No event is timed, it is all about having fun and raising funds for a charity close to your heart.

“It is a great event for all the family and it is not unusual to see grandma, mum and daughter all lining up together at the start line. We also have many people taking part in fancy dress to add to the feel-good atmosphere.”
